I phoned in a take away order for lunch at this lovely restaurant and was even able to find street side parking just down the block (they may have parking out back too). The building is historic and the inside is cozy and not blaring bright. For take away you go to the bar and it took the bartender a... More

I've always wanted to try this restaurant so my husband took me out one night as he got tired of going to the normal ones that I like. We had heard mixed reviews either you love it or you don't but I've always wanted to try it. Personally it did not disappoint. It had been a long time since my... More

This is a magnificent place for exquisite dining when visiting Leesburg for lunch or dinner! Ive been here with business associates, as a couple, with friends and with family. It suits any occasion! The Master Chef takes great pride in creating the menu and conducts every plate presentation like a conductor leading a classical orchestral masterpiece. Ensure that you make... More

Wonderful food with impeccable wait staff. Drinks were made perfectly. Extensive list, but expensive wines. Filet and daily fish specials were delicious. Since it was summer, the desserts were primarily ice cream based. Since it was a special birthday, we would have loved a cake option. Otherwise a truly wonderful evening.

We came here with my girlfriend's parents a few months ago and the food is delicious and the wait staff really know what they're doing. The bread was fresh, the onion soup was clearly made by someone who knew what they were doing and my filet was cooked perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their meal and our server was knowledgeable and brought... More

We went to Lightfoot for lunch for my in-laws birthdays. We were interested in trying a new restaurant in the Leesburg Historic District. The menu had lots of fantastic and delicious choices. The building has so much charm. I think it was an old bank building and retains all of the character of a throwback to a different time. Our... More

We were looking for a nice place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary while visiting Loudon County, and we settled on Lightfoot. Stepping into the restaurant was stepping back in time, the building was once an old bank building, complete with all the old style classic marble and pillars of a bygone era, but it's been converted into a warm...

We were visiting Loudon County/Leesburg with our friends and stopped at Lightfoot for lunch. The ambience is great. The owners have done a wonderful job in turning a former bank into a top-notch restaurant, while keeping some of the interesting elements of an old bank. The food is equally impressive. Lightfoot has a very creative menu and it is well... More
